It's a wrap!

I wanted to share a sheet of custom wrapping paper I made this weekend
using a vintage postcard I painted with some corals & seaweeds.
Homemade wrapping paper
I scanned the postcard & repeated the image a couple of times in Photoshop
and used them to make a mirror image until I liked the overall design.
Corals wrapping paper & Fish gift tag
I printed the finished design on my ink jet (Epson Stylus Photo R1800)
Sea themed present
And cut out one of my printed fishies to make a custom gift tag.
Fish tag
I really liked how the pattern turned out,
I might use it to make a journal/book cover too.
